Nebraska Minor Child Power of Attorney Form
The Nebraska Minor Child Power of Attorney is a legal instrument for parents to appoint another individual to perform a range of actions, all of which are linked to the provision of care to their child. These actions may include:
- Performing tasks in a parental capacity,
- Providing consent to the child’s medical care and treatment, and
